The overall hotel is nice! Staff is also nice! Price is reasonable! Location is great!... near I75 and tons of restaurants, grocery stores, dept stores, movie theater and mall. This is not an extended stay deluxe like we stayed in Ga. It has a kitchen with full size fridge, microwave, sink and 2 burners then a bathroom, small dining room table w/ 2 chairs and normal regular bedroom area. Wish it had more cupboard space but it does beat having a mini fridge and microwave only. (The extended stay Deluxe hotels have more room with a living room and dining room area and large closet which is nicer for our very long extended stays) This one does not have a pool or weight lifting room either which I really do miss!
Beds in pet room aren't as comfortable as the pillow top ones in the other rooms so we just brought along a foam pad to help. Guess that's the price ya pay for having a pet.
They do allow pets for a small one time fee and do have smoking rooms but ya have to stay on the 3rd floor. Kind of hard to get a puppy down 3 flights of steps when they need to go... lol! It does have an elevator but I don't want to take a chance of a mess.
It has a nice large and clean coin laundry room with 4 washers and 6 dryers that they fix rather quickly if one breaks down.
The rooms are clean and haven't seen any bugs at all. Been here 2 months and the rooms do have a preventive bug spraying. Housekeeping doesn't clean appliances but I would rather do that myself anyhow. Housekeeping is included with the price once a week for extended stays and you can go down and get anything you need during the week... ie: towels, bathroom tissues, garbage bags, linens and etc. They also offer housekeeping to come more often for a small fee, if ya like.
The free wifi hasn't given me any problems. TV has the basic channels needed. Plenty of parking spaces. Not real noisy except for an occasional door closing loudly... would probably recommend a room facing the front or side versus the back where the hwy is. People that stay here are nice and haven't had any problems with anyone. A/C and heat work well and aren't noisey. There are 2 luggage carts located in front of the office for convenince. Office stays open from 7am til 11 pm mon thru fri... not sure of the weekend hours.
Only problem we have had here is with our mail. When we went home for a weekend, I received mail and coincidently, there was another couple staying here that weekend and the man had the same first and last name as my husband and the staff didn't pay attention to the room number on the mail... even tho my first name is different from his wife's... they didn't catch it and I have no idea why she accepted the mail knowing she was only here for a weekend except for the fact she thought she would get away with it?! Luckily, both packages had tracking numbers and the staff did figure out what happened and contacted her and the hotel did pay to get it back here to me. I was still upset that BOTH pkgs were opened by the other woman with the same last name! I could have pressed charges... opening someone's else's mail is a felony! I really do think that an ID check should be done before giving out mail at any hotel!
